The Nissan SKYLINE GTS-R (R31) '87 is a Road car produced by Nissan. It first appears in Gran Turismo 2, and has returned in every main game since, except for Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec and Gran Turismo Sport.
Originally, four colors were available for this car, however, with the release of Gran Turismo 4, Blue Black is now the only color remaining:
"The R31 Evo spec; an 800-car limited model, built to win Group A racing."
While the previous generation (R30) Skyline model took this wildly-popular Japanese sports car icon to a whole new level in terms of performance and respect, the seventh generation version (R31) lost a bit of its "street cred" when it first appeared in 1985 as a 4-door sedan and, *gasp*, a wagon. But true-blue Skyline loyalists were relieved when the 2-door coupe model made its debut in May 1986.
But the most potent of all Skylines (not including the GT-R of course) didn't show up until August of 1987. It was the GTS-R, limited to only 800 cars in total. Developed to reclaim the Group A title, the GTS-R was a very sporty model, hence its immense popularity.
Starting with the RB20DET turbocharged inline-6 of the GTS, the GTS-R received a more potent T04E turbocharger and a stainless steel exhaust manifold, this duo boosting power output to 207 HP and torque to 180.8 ft-lb. This engine was so special it ended up getting its own designation, the RB20DET-R. The exterior and suspension were also improved.
The GTS-R excelled in Group A, with the Reebok-sponsored Skyline crowned champion for the 1989 season. But the car's name triggered controversy among fans, who wondered why not just call it a GT-R. The answer would not be revealed for another two years with the debut of the R32 model.
